Abstract

Chemistry scholars and educators are intentionally creating inclusive curriculum and equitable learning opportunities in response to the inequities in society exposed by the challenges of discrimination and the pandemic over the past few years. This special issue shines a light on discipline-based education research (DBER) in chemistry that addresses diversity, equity, inclusion, and respect (DEIR) in classrooms, on campuses, and in the broader chemical discipline. The diversity of manuscripts in this special issue can help chemistry educators and researchers gain insights into including diverse perspectives and providing equitable access to learning for students. Notably, the rich scholarship has the potential to catalyze further crucial research in DEIR challenges in chemistry education.
